Minden, LA asked in Landlord - Tenant for Louisiana

Q: I moved out during separation, need to evict roommates to move back in. What are our legal rights if they refuse?

My husband took in roommates when I moved out of the house we jointly own during our separation. They need to move out since we reconciled and am moving back in. Do they have any legal rights & refuse to leave? What legal rights do I have since I own 50% & never agreed to anything with them? If they refuse & try to fight me how should I proceed? We live in Louisiana. They have not paid bills or rent & have no written agreement. However they do receive mail here. Please advise on where I stand legally and how to expedite the process. Thank you!
